Women in Ag Science Panel
This past March 2, 2020, #WomenInAgScience hosted its first panel at The Ohio State University’s School of Environment and Natural Resources. With 5 distinguished guest speakers, Dr. Christine Sprunger, Dr. Laura Lindsey, Dr. Marília Chiavegato, Dr. Mary Ann Rose, and Hort. Pamela Poeth, and over 20 attendees including the Wooster Campus, we talked about the issues that we face in graduate school and in the work environment such as insecurity, loneliness, fear, and how to handle life’s uncertainties. The speakers shared words of advice and encouraged younger women to follow their passion, pursue their dreams, and just GO FOR IT! Don’t let anything or anyone stop you.
Thanks again to our panelists and our attendees! Photo credit goes to Nall Moonilall
Women in Ag Science Open House in the Wooster Science Café
On Tuesday, September 3rd from 7 pm-8:30 pm, WAGS participated at the 5th Anniversary Celebration Open House of the Wooster Science Café. This activity was a celebration of science with various science-interested folks in the Wooster community coming together to talk about and experience science. This was an opportunity to let the community know what types of research are going on locally. Science demonstrations were showcased as visitors mingled with the scientists. Women In Ag Science showcased their efforts with their active platform. This was done by showing excerpts of past interviews, as well as educational material of their mission and vision. Alongside WAGS, an interactive demonstration on plant pathology was held by co-founder, Marlia Bosques-Martínez.
